After a fantastic nether update last year, Mojang is ready to amaze players with a beautiful Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update.

At the Minecon 2020 live event, developers officially showcased the new upcoming features of the Caves and Cliffs update. These included the cave and mountain biomes, world generation changes, mobs, copper, and many blocks/items.

Due to work from home and technical difficulties regarding world generation, Mojang split the update into two parts. The first part of the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update features new amethyst geodes, mobs, blocks, and items, whereas the second update focuses on new biomes and world generation changes.

Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 1 followed the initial schedule and is ready for its official release on all devices.
